More New Mexico names

The University of New Mexico cut ties with men’s basketball coach Craig Neal.  Now the question is, ‘Who will replace him?’  Here is a list of some potential candidates.  This is NOT a list of people UNM has already talked to or considered, but rather a list of coaches who might fit the profile.


First and foremost, I believe UNM Vice President for Athletics Paul Krebs will hire someone who already has head coaching experience.  UNM was Craig Neal’s first head coaching job and it didn’t work out.  Mike Locksley made his head coaching football debut with the Lobos and that was a disaster.  The first head coaching gig for Yvonne Sanchez didn’t last with the Lobos.  Paul Krebs will not go that route again.
